Onto the next weathering project, the past few days effort.
Again working from a photo from 1998, I have tried to replicate the characteristic build up of oily dirt on the bodyside. The grills had all previously been repainted in the correct grey rather than body colour. Underframe dirt was built up in several layers, along with an oily finish on the fuel tanks / battery boxes. Cab sides and ends were relatively clean, (although I lost the numbers on one side applying a wash).
I think there is something not quite right with it, but can’t put my finger on it...
